Edwin Eckels' exceptionally detailed volume, published in 1928, presents a wealth of information drawing on his own research as well as the work of all the eminent international authorities in the field of lime mortars and cements. It captures the fascinating development of building materials from the nineteenth centuray through the first quarter of the twentieth century. Of particular intrest is the way in which it chronicles the demise of hydraulic cement, followed by the brief meteoric rise in popularity of natural cements, then subsequently their rapid eclipse by Portland cement. This book will be an invaluble resource not only to everyone involved in conservation of traditional buildings but also those concerned with the early modern buildings constructed from portland cement.

This book will be an invaluble resource not only to everyone involved in conservation of traditional buildings, but also those concerned with the early modern buildings constructed from Portland cement.

About the Author:

Edwin Clarence Eckel (1875-1941) was geologist working in many fields of mineral exploitation across the southern United States.

From the Reviews:

This edition describes the development of a wide range of 'cementitious' materials, particulary through the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It covers the raw materials, procustion processes and matrial properties of plasters, limes (both hyraulic and non-hyraulic), natural or Roman cements, Portland cement, Pozzolanic cements and cements based upon calcium aluminate. In short, this book has somthing for everyone.
